New Delhi: Union Minister Piyush Goyal has advised the States to keep the demand under control by containing the second wave of COVID-19.
Goyal0⁰0’s advise came amid an acute shortage of life-saving medical oxygen in many Covid-hit parts of the country.
“State governments should keep demand (for medical oxygen) under control. The demand-side management is as important as the supply-side management. Containing COVID-19 spread is the responsibility of state governments and they should fulfil this responsibility,” the Union Minister was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
He said, “If cases continue to rise unlimitedly, then it will pose a major challenge for the healthcare infrastructure of the country. We are with state governments, but they need to manage the demand and take concrete steps to contain COVID-19 spread”.
